Beyond our expectations!

Clean, fresh, very well equipped and supplied. Location is ideal. Brad is the commensurate host. We missed Toy as she was out of town during our stay. Can't wait to return.

Perfect blend of attentiveness and privacy in a very clean and well appointed guesthouse.

  • 5 of 5

I do not have the time or space to share all of the positive thoughts I have about my stay with Brad and Toy. I will share some highlights!

Upon arriving late on a Sunday after traveling ALL DAY, I was met by Toy who is delightful. She spent a quick few minutes briefing on everything I needed to know to enjoy my stay. She left nothing out and made me feel at home and comfortable!.

Her guesthouse gets an A+ for cleanliness. It also gets an A+ for comfort. The bed is super comfy and living area so spacious!

There was nothing that I needed that I did not have and nothing that I wanted that Toy would not have provided. She was more than a hostess. She really cares that her guests are comfortable and happy. She goes overboard with amenities.

Her breakfast each morning is to die for! I am not really a breakfast person but thoroughly enjoyed being treated to Toy's fabulous cooking and diverse menu. Everyday was better than the one before. Now I am a breakfast person!

To say that I enjoyed my stay is an understatement. I look forward to returning to Poway and staying with Brad and Toy again soon. Thank you both for opening your home to those of us who have to travel and don't particularly enjoy the hotel experience!

My boys and I really enjoyed our stay. Toy and her family are wonderful. She is so caring and really made our stay comfortable. The house had everything we needed. Nothing was missed. Breakfast each morning was delicious. My sons really loved playing pool too. We will be back and really look forward to it. Thank you Toy!!

A great property

  • 5 of 5

The property was ideal. The guest house was clean and well kept. It was stocked with everything you could possibly need,and you have all the privacy you want.

Toy made some of the most tasty breakfast's you could possible imagine . She would also check with you to see if there was anything you needed or if she could help in anyway.

The visit was a totally pleasurable experience. I hope to be staying there from now on when I take my yearly visit to Poway.

Thank you Toy and Brad for helping make this years visit even more enjoyable.

Perfect little house

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Toy for opening up your guest house to my boys and I. This little house was perfect for our needs. I loved the security with the gate access. The bed and the pillows were so comfortable. My boys slept on the hide a bed sofa and the little cot you provided. All of the little extras did not go unnoticed. I loved having a little outdoor patio to enjoy my morning coffee, and the yummy breakfasts you made for us.

Thanks again for everything. Kristy
